Through a Glass Darkly [Sasom i en spegel]

Stockholm: Svensk Filmindustri, 1961. Original Swedish illustrated poster for the 1961 Swedish film. The first entry in Bergman's legendary and highly personal "Faith" trilogy, which won the director his second Best Foreign Film Oscar, and defined what came to be called his "chamber dramas."

A young woman is released from a mental institution, and moves to an island where her family resides to recover. But she finds little solace, and no support from her father, her husband, or her brother. A landmark film, in that it is not so much an examination into mental illness as a perspective of on a private world from a mind that has departed day to day concerns.

27.5 x 38.5 inches. Lightly restored, linen-backed and rolled. Near Fine.
